The amount of waste heading to landfills is reaching epidemic proportions, so the 'Uroboro' composting bin is designed to help divert organic waste. Designed as a domestic vermicomposter, the 'Uroboro' works by allowing earthworms to eat food scraps as individuals or families create them. The planter portion on the top hides the waste and worms to make it a more realistic piece of decor to incorporate into the home.

The 'Uroboro' composting bin was designed by Marco Balsinha and features four different clay pot portions. This allows the earthworms to move about in the container, convert the waste to humus and offer a more holistic approach to urban composting. The clay design of the 'Uroboro' allows it to mitigate smells and absorb moisture more effectively.
